Pattaya Travel Information

Pattaya is Thailand's premier beach resort and annually attracts hundreds of thousands of pleasure seeking tourists from all over the world. Pattaya relaxing tropical ambience is perfect for a memorial holiday experience for families, couples and single visitors.
Up until about thirty years ago, Pattaya was little more than a fishing village. American GI's from bases in Nakhon Ratchasima 'discovered' the beach, resulting in it becoming an R 'n' R spot during the Indo-Chinese wars. 

Over the years it has developed into the full scale international resort that it is today.
Pattaya beach touches the shoreline in a 4 km long arc. The southern beach is well renowned for its night-time activities. The streets alive to the hustle and bustle of the entertainment halls, crowded bars and restaurants. The northern beach is more sedate, well for Pattaya. A few kilometres south of Pattaya is the beach of Jomtien, with a cleaner beach and a cleaner reputation. A full range of water sports, along with equipment to hire can be arranged at many places both at Pattaya and Jomtien resorts.

For those of a more sporting nature, indoor or outdoor, Pattaya has the facilities for a whole range of sports that cater for all ages, and all levels of physical exertion. There are bowling alleys, snooker halls, archery and several of the leading hotels have tennis courts. For those wanting to tone their bodies for the beach, there are several gyms and fitness centres around the town. More fun sports are also available; go-karting, parasailing and paintballing skirmishes.

Golfing enthusiasts can challenge the greens at nearby international courses.
Ofcourse there are also the usual water-borne activities to enjoy as well in Pattaya.
Although it is more associated with its debauched patrons, it is more than fast food restaurants and A go-go bars. It is not just a Patpong-sur-le-mer: it has amenities for the whole family to enjoy. With theme parks, water parks, amusement arcades and many of the leading hotels having 'childrens clubs' to keep the kids entertained, the whole family can find something to enjoy in Pattaya.

Along with all this, a wide variety of accommodations, restaurants, and entertainment all help to make Pattaya one of Thailand's prime tourist attractions.

Pattaya Beach

Sand, sun and fun make Pattaya one of the most popular destinations for visitors to Thailand. Pattaya, on the eastern coast of the Gulf of Thailand, was a small fishing village until the early 1960's when it was 'invaded' by American soldiers and sailors seeking rest and recreation while on leave from serving in Vietnam. It has since blossomed into a cosmopolitan city dedicated to the pursuit of excitement, pleasure and adventure.

Pattaya CityEasy to get to from Bangkok by air conditioned bus, Pattaya offers every imaginable form of water sports, plentiful and affordable golf courses, including some designed by the most famous names in the game, and stimulating nightlife.

In the last few years Pattaya has, in an effort to broaden its appeal to family vacationers, toned down some of the rowdy behavior that had given it a dubious reputation. But you will still find a profusion of clubs and cabarets which cater to every taste and persuasion, and Pattaya's famously charming hostesses will still delight all your senses. Pattaya is the ideal destination for those seeking non-stop entertainment. It has boisterous go-go bars, clamorous discos and tumultuous nightclubs. Visitors seeking deserted and unpolluted beaches and a laid back atmosphere should go elsewhere.

Hotels and guesthouses in every price range have more than 12,000 rooms available, and while Pattaya is not the cheapest beach resort in the region, it is competitively priced when compared to similar vacation destinations. It is unsurpassed in the variety of services and activities available.

Pattaya Annual FestivalWith it's many well equipped and reasonably priced dive shops Pattaya is a favorite destination of scuba enthusiasts from all over the world. While there are other, superior, dive sites in Thailand, Pattaya is the most convenient to Bangkok and is the jumping off point for trips to Ko Laan, and the nearby islands of Ko Sak and Ko Krok. More advanced divers seeking a more challenging experience may want to head out to the more remote Ko Man Wichai or Ko Rin, where visibility is better, or to the shipwrecks near Sattahip.

Naklua beach, immediately north of Pattaya, is quiet and unpolluted. It doesn't have as many restaurants or expensive resort hotels as it's neighbor to the south, nor the rowdy nightlife, but all these are available for the 10 Baht cost of a 20 minute songthaew ride to Pattaya beach. Similarly, Jomtien beach, around the headland to the south of Pattaya, is quieter and less congested but has good quality accommodations and restaurants.

All night, every nightPattaya beach is world renowned for the variety and unrestrained hedonism of it's nightlife, though city leaders have in recent years made an effort to confine the commercial sex industry to an area of south Pattaya beach. The frenzied merrymaking diminishes as you move up the beach road to central and north Pattaya, and to neighboring Naklua beach.


Jomtien Beach

Jomtien BeachA six km long stretch of beach facing southeast into the Gulf of Thailand makes Hat Jomtien popular with windsurfers and water sports enthusiasts who appreciate its uncrowded waves and refreshing light winds.

Compared to the congested, unhygienic waterfront of nearby Pattaya, Jomtien beach is a haven of peaceful enjoyment of the seashore. In recent years a number of beachside hotels, bungalow complexes and restaurants have been built to accommodate the increasing numbers of tourists, many of them family vacationers.

With the nighttime delights of Pattaya Beach located just a few km to the north (a ten baht sonthaew ride), Jomtien attracts people who want to swim, water ski or parasail in waters that are less polluted, while still having access to the sophisticated attractions of its more famous neighbor. It has also become a major residential area for retirees and others looking for a more laid back, less frenetic beachside home.

Hat Bang Saen

Hat Bang SaenBang Saen Beach, 100 km southeast of Bangkok and about 10 km from the provincial capital of Chonburi, is a day trip for residents of Bangkok, and is visited mostly on weekends by Thai tourists looking for a relaxing day on the sand. Eclipsed in recent decades by Pattaya, it was once the favorite getaway for Bangkok's elite. Now it attracts mostly Thai families and teenagers looking for a brief, low budget holiday weekend.

Tall coconut palms shade the promenade which borders the long curving sweep of beach. Ocean World amusement park is located on the road which runs behind the beach and features several swimming pools, slides and a small roller coaster. Local vendors sell fruit, seafood and snacks, such as squid, mussels and spicy steamed fish cakes, and rent chairs, multicolored umbrellas and other beach paraphernalia. Shower facilities are available. Inexpensive guesthouses, bungalows and a small resort cater to those who choose to stay more than one day.

A marine aquarium and museum on the campus of Srinakharinwirot University, on the road between the highway and the beach, has exhibits on the marine environment and the aquatic species native to the waters of the Gulf of Thailand.

Getting there
Pattaya is 140 Kilometres by road from Bangkok. There is a motorway that runs from Bangkok to Chonburi and a new dual carriage way road from Chonburi to Pattaya. Unfortunately it can take an hour or more to get from the airport to the start of the motorway so many drivers will choose to use the Bang Na Expressway which passes by the airport and now goes all the way to Chonburi. The fastest way by road is to take the Bang Na Expressway, turnoff at the Bangkok - Chonburi Motorway exit. Turn right on to the Motorway and then follow the signs to Pattaya. Following this route I've completed the journey in less than 1 hour 30 minutes.

Taxi and Limo
One-way fare by limo is about 2,500 Baht, a 5 star taxi is about 1,500 Baht and a meter taxi is about 1,200 Baht.

Air Conditioned Bus
This is probably the easiest, cheapest and most pleasant way to get from Bangkok to Pattaya for the budget traveler. Busses leave from the Eastern Bus Terminal on Sukhumvit Rd every 30 minutes or so between 6am and 2am the next day. The bus arrives in Pattaya at a bus terminal on North Pattaya Rd, within a couple of kilometers of all major hotels. The cost for the bus ride is just 75 baht. From the terminal grab a baht bus (blue utility vehicle with seating in the back). You will have to negotiate the fare but it should not be more than 40 baht.

By air-conditioned bus (Duration 2 1/2 hrs.) 
If you are on a tight budget, take the VIP air-conditioned bus.
Departure from the Eastern Bus Terminal (Ekkamai) to the Pattaya Bus Station on North Pattaya Rd. daily at 05.00 hrs. and every 30 minutes until 22.00 hrs. One way fare: approx. 77 Baht. 
Departure from the Northern Bus Terminal (Mor Chit) to the Pattaya Bus Station on North Pattaya Rd. daily at 05.00 hrs. and every 30 minutes until 19.00 hrs. One way fare: approx. 77 Baht.
Departure from the Bangkok Airport to Pattaya daily at 9.00, 12.00 and 19.00 hrs. One way fare: approx. 180 Baht Reservation: Thai Airway, arrival lounge.

By non air-conditioned bus
Departure from the Eastern Bus Terminal Daily at 05.00 hrs. and every 30 minutes until 21.00 hrs.
One way fare: approx. 37 Baht.

By train
There is a train leaving the Bangkok Railway Station (Hualamphong) to Pattaya daily at 7.00 hrs.
Call (66-2) 2237010, 2237020 for further information.

Climate
Thailand has a tropical climate with three seasons: 
Hot (March-May), Rainy (June-October) and Cool (November-February). 
It is hot all year round, there is little difference between the hottest and coolest months, and average temperatures are around 27� c. 
The months with the most rain are July, August and September. Pattaya coastal location means more breezes than say Bangkok and the rain tends to come in short and heavy bursts rather than prolonged over days, but no matter when you come, you'll have a good time. 

What to bring
Light summer clothes, (unless you are here during the winter, and plan to go to the Northern region, then you should bring a sweater). But you may find it easier to buy cloths when you are here as they are very cheap and very good quality. Bring your swimming gear; but no need to bring scuba tanks as they can be easily rented from most dive shops for less than the cost of bringing your own.

International Driving License, if you want to drive a hire car or Jeep. Most visitors, especially from Europe, don't bother buying "Duty-free" alcohol or cigarettes, as these items are very cheap here, for example a packett of 20 imported cigarettes is around 50 Baht and good Scotch about 850 Baht.

Getting Around Pattaya
Once you have arrived in Pattaya, getting around is easy and cheap.
The common form of transport is the Baht bus, a converted pick-up truck with a covered back and seats to accommodate about 10 persons. The fare within the Pattaya city area is an amazing 5 Baht! These "buses" are plentiful and operate 24-hours a day. You never have to wait more than a minute or two for the next one to come along. 
Motorcycle taxis are for the more adventurous. If you prefer to drive yourself, rental cars, jeeps and motorcycles of all styles are also available. 

Travel within the resort
Travelling around Pattaya is most convenient by mini-buses that continually ply the Beach Road and Pattaya 2nd Road in counterclockwise circuits. Fares are 5 Baht per person per ride, fares beyond main bag one negotiable.
